Oxford Dictionaries Pricing

The foreign language content that was available through Oxford Language Dictionaries Online (OLDO) has now relaunched on the Oxford Dictionaries (OD) site. This transition provides users with better, more updated functionality and brings all of the nine following languages onto one platform.

  • Arabic (Oxford Dictionaries - Arabic)
  • Chinese (Oxford Dictionaries - Chinese)
  • English (Oxford Dictionaries - English)
  • French (Oxford Dictionaries - French)
  • German (Oxford Dictionaries - German)
  • Italian (Oxford Dictionaries - Italian)
  • Portuguese (Oxford Dictionaries - Portuguese)
  • Russian (Oxford Dictionaries - Russian)
  • Spanish (Oxford Dictionaries - Spanish)

This change also means that the OLDO product is no longer available; instead, subscribers can get the language content of their choice through Oxford Dictionaries. There are options to subscribe by picking and choosing individual languages, or libraries can opt to subscribe to all nine languages in one package. Increasing discounts are applied to the pricing as more languages are included in a subscription.

Oxford Dictionaries contains the content that was previously known as the products Oxford Dictionaries Online (ODO) and Oxford Dictionaries Pro (ODPro). This content is now Oxford Dictionaries - English within the larger Oxford Dictionaries product.

Minimum Pricing (2017-2018):

With the exception of K-12 schools and certain specific products (mentioned below), the minimum price for an annual subscription to any Oxford database is $430. Network discounts are not deducted from this minimum charge and the minimum cannot be prorated.

  • Minimum subscription price for Oxford Medicine Online: $100
  • No minimum subscription price for Oxford Bibliographies Online and University Press Scholarship Online.
  • If the discounted price for a full year of a subscription is less than the $430 minimum, then that full-year price will act as the minimum in that case.

Pro-rating School Subscriptions:

Oxford offers very attractive "School Bundle Pricing" for K-12 schools if they order more than one Oxford product. Oxford allows the prorating of school subscriptions throughout the year; however, there is a minimum charge of $100 for any school subscription, even when pro-rating would result in a price less than $100. A network discount is not deducted from this $100 minimum and the minimum cannot be prorated.

Multi-Campus Academic Institutions / Multi-Branch Public Libraries:

There will be no aggregating of FTE's for academic institutions with multiple campuses or public library systems with multiple branches.  Each branch will be invoiced separately.

Subscription Term:

July 1 - June 30

January 1 - December 31 (for Oxford Online Law Resources)

Deadline: 

June 15, 2017 (for a July 1, 2017 start date)

Late Renewals:  A late renewal fee of 5% of the initial charge will be added to all July 1 renewals received after June 30. Oxford will automatically cancel any subscription not renewed by July 1st, so customers will lose access at that time.  In order to prevent any interruption of service, it is imperative that all renewals be received by June 15th, 2017.

Mid-term subscriptions will be accepted.  Subscription fees will be prorated for the months remaining in the subscription term, but no subscription fee will be prorated below the minimum rate. 

Oxford allows the prorating of school subscriptions throughout the year; however, there is a minimum charge of $100 for any school subscription, even when pro-rating would result in a price less than $100. A network discount is not deducted from this $100 minimum and the minimum cannot be prorated.

For mid-term subscriptions you must have your order form and signed license agreements to the Nebraska Library Commission by the 10th of the month to have access beginning the first day of the following month.

Cancellation Policy; User Level Downgrades & Upgrades:

Oxford's policy remains that all subscriptions are non-cancellable and non-refundable. Additionally, Oxford will not allow credits for a user level downgrade during the course of a subscription. User level upgrades are always welcome and will be prorated for the appropriate term.
